I have 8 carboys-- all 3 gallon Better Bottles.  I brew half recipes, can't lift a full glass 5 gallon carboy, and I like a variety of beer around.

3 6.5 gallon ones for primary fermentation when the conical is tied up.
3 6 gallon ones for dry hopping with irrational exuberance.
8 5 gallon carboys for 'normal' dry hopping, aging, ciders and meads.
2 2.5 gallon ones for cider and mead.

I know people with more than that.

They aren't "really" required. I do mostly primary fermentation and use buckets. Now if I am going to a secondary fermentation to clear a beer, I rack to a carboy. Also, If I am doing a lager I do it in glass. Most all of my glass and Better Bottle carboy's are for winemaking.

I have 3 5 gallon, one 6.5 gallon, and a moonshining buddy left 2 of his 6.5 gallon carboys in my garage a year ago and hasn't taken them so they may be mine.
Currently I'm using one 6.5 gallon for a our cherry beer and 1 five gallon for a batch of malt vinegar, but the others just collect dust.  I prefer buckets with spigots and I also have a conical.
Title: Re: How many carboys do you own?
Post by: capozzoli on November 08, 2009, 03:18:05 PM
I only have one carboy. I have six 6 gallon better bottles and two buckets. The carboy has had a cider aging in it for about a year and a half I think. Man I have to bottle that stuff. It was that long ago that Denny told me I have at least a year or two before it is ready. So, no hurry I guess.

Soon I have to get out of the pupa stage of extract brewing and blossom into an AG brewer. Ill be batch sparging soon. 

Ill tell ya if it wasnt for my pesky job, I would be brewing a lot more.

Title: Re: How many carboys do you own?
Post by: Crispy275 on November 09, 2009, 02:50:58 PM
OK, this is a little over the top, but I have an excuse...which is I love this hobby!

In 2005 when the FORD and Ann Arbor Brewers Guild clubs helped me put together a presentation for Baltimore that required 18 carboys to ferment out 18 different yeast strains, Pat Babcock came to me and said that he could "loan" me 8 of his carboys and 9 of his kegs. He said I would be doing him a favor if I could hold on to them for a little while, as their house was having some renovations being done.

Four years later, I guess i have "adopted" these vessels, and they do come in handy during the peak of my brewing season (coming up shortly). So, I have

5     6.5 gallon  (2 with Flanders Red in them)
23   5 gallon     (2 with a cider and a cyser going right now)
6     3 gallon     (5 filled with various meads aging, and 1 with a Flanders Red aging - damn, I need more of these size ones!))
30+  one gallon and half gallon cider jugs and growlers
17 Kegs
Oh, and did I mention the 53 gallon barrel filled with Flanders Red for the last year?

I have a closet in the basement that I converted to house 24 of these carboys. I try to keep my long suffering ale wife from realizing the sheer quantity by making sure at least a half dozen or so are fermenting something at any given time. This past spring I didn't have much ferementing and she began to notice all of these empty carboys laying around in the basement. She started asking me to put these away and didn't I have a closet for these? I sort of "hide" them until I started up the kettles again, but she is now aware of the sheer quantity of glass ware in my fermenting area.

Did I mention that I have broken 5 carboys in my life? Fortunatly, only one small cut and only one had beer in it, the other 4 were during the cleaning process. Slippery little bugers, aren't they?  :-*
Title: Re: How many carboys do you own?
Post by: matthew on November 09, 2009, 03:05:45 PM
5 - 5gal glass
2 - 3 gal glass-Italian ones I bought
3 - 2.8 gal glass- th short squaty ones that 2.5 gals of water comes in
6 - 1 gal cider/apple juice ones 
My sister works for a water company so they were free sept for th 3 gal ones, I bought them in '95
or so before she went to work for MV water. Had six 6 gal'ers but had a buddy break one for me.
They are all gathering dust but I think that's gonna change in a month or so.

You WOULD have to ask, you flamin' bastage :D. So I had to go look.
The truth is I wasn't certain. Since I make wine, mead and beer I have collected a bunch.
Fermentation "vessels":

1 27 gal Blichman ferminator.
1 17 gal "sanitized food grade" white plastic trash can w/lid I use for wine.
2 15 gal demijohns
1 7gal minibrew conical
2 6.5 glass
2 6 gal better bottles
12 5 gal glass ( lost another 4 by breakage/ flaws)
9 3 gal glass.

And I do my lagers in corney kegs. I've also collected a few of those as well.
Whew! That was work, I need a beer.

2 - 5.0 gal glass carboys

just sold my last 6.5g glass carboy.  keeping the two small guys to secondary big beers, otherwise they'd be gone too.

rarely use anything these days except the conical, though that will change around christmas time - annual RIS and BW/ESB (partigyle) brews, and maybe a BDS...

yes, I have it in a stand up chest freezer.  I don't have a problem with it being warm enough  ;)

I don't really secondary anything anymore - I do a 2-3 week primary for ales, 3-4 for lagers and then crash and rack to cornies.  with the racking arm is really easy to rack without getting a lot of sediment - I've been amazed how little is left in the kegs vs. when I used to rack from carboys.

I live in Jupiter, Florida - in January, its usually between 65-75df, occasionally, we'll have a drop into the 40s or 50s, but it usually doesn't last long enough to drop the temperature inside my garage.

I have:

One 5-gallon glass carboy
Two 7.9-gallon buckets
One converted Sanke keg fermenter
Eight corny kegs

I seldom use the carboys anymore.  I've started skipping the secondary for most ales, and just cold crash, and keg after a longer primary.  For lagers, I rack to a corny for secondary and lagering.

I have no carboys whatsoever.  I got rid of them all after a pretty bad cut (3 years and the index finger still doesn't work quite right.  I currently use a used 15 gallon HDPE barrel that my old lhbs received bulk extract in, a sabco yeast brink, and the occasional 6 or 7 gallon fermentation bucket.  Most batches are 12 gallon in the hdpe barrel.

That would be the downside of the 27 gal. It's a bit hard to move around when full.

yeah, I have mine attached to a cart w/ casters that I built cause I wasn't gonna pay $100+ for the Blichmann ones. Just fill at the kettle, roll to the chest freezer, bend at the knees and drive the legs!

my buddy has a few of the 27s and he just has the conical inside the fridge (old soda vending fridge) and pumps the beer about 15ft across his shed from the kettle - seems to work well enough too.

After a series of infections in my glass carboy (yeah, I cleaned and sanitized...over an over), I switched to some buckets because they were so cheap.  I prefer them now because they are cheaper, safer, and easier to carry.  I do miss watching fermentation and I really liked the idea that all my beer was in contact was glass with carboys, but I'm doing buckets for now.  I got 3 of em.

I sold all of my glass about a year ago and will never go back.

I had a dream that I was given a Blichmann conical a few days ago. :)
I live in a tiny apartment in Brooklyn, so this will never become a reality as long as I live here. :(

Just out of curiosity, do all of you guys with larger conicals keep them in standup freezers?  Do they not make some sort of glycol-jacketed sleeve that you could put on the conical and connect to a freezer?

Two 6 gallon carboys 
Two 5 gallon carboys
Two 6.5 gallon buckets
6 cornys

If I had to do it all over again I'd have zero carboys, a bunch of buckets, and tons of cornys.  Carboys take up too much of my limited space when they're not in use.

OR

I'd have a dedicated brew house with unlimited space. :P

I have (4) Mexi 6 Gallons.  I also have 2 buckets.  I like glass-maybe the misconception that it is easier to clean?

'Cause it is NOT.  I spent a long time getting dried krausen off the dome from a wild ferment.

I am not going to buy anymore for now as I would rather get 6-8 cornies and free myself from bottling and carbination headaches.

Right now I have 5 six galloncarboys (had six, broke one last new years eve due to an alcohol induced carboy moving accident - no one was hurt but some tears were shed), 2 five gallon carboys and 2 working buckets. Lots of junk buckets. And, yes, there are times when every one of them is full.  :)

That is the key, how many are actually in use at any given time?  Well, I am filling a couple today.... :)

I have two 5-gal glass carboys, and two 3-gal better bottles.  I used to have two 6-gal better bottles, but both cracked along the bottom, coincidentally within a week of each other.
